Mindy Kaling’s Velma gets premiere date

HBO Max has set an official release date for Mindy Kaling’s “Velma.” Deadline reports that the adult animated series will premiere on January 12, 2023.

The show will tell the origin story of Velma Dinkley, a member of the Scooby-Doo gang. Kaling is set to voice Velma. According to TV Line, Glenn Howerton, Sam Richardson and Constance Wu will respectively voice Fred, Shaggy and Daphne.

A teaser trailer for the show was released at New York Comic Con in October, where Kaling announced the rest of the cast.

“Growing up I identified with Velma,” Kaling said New York Comic Con, according to Deadline. “She was so cute but not traditionally hot .. with a questionable haircut. I feel so honored I get to do the voice … she’s a truth teller, cutting through the bullshit of life. When you are smart and under-appreciated. I hope people appreciate that.”

The AV Club noted that, although the show has a premiere date, there’s no information on what kind of release schedule “Velma” will follow.
